Hey thats not all that bad, granted the stock con-rod only lasted me 1000 miles and cost me a piston, so add in a new piston a roller rod and my machinest fees for pressing it in.

Re: How much money is in your engine

Re: How much money is in your engine

my gf has a free moped with a free 75cc polini kit, free 14 14 carb, free mc2 tires, free engine tuning, free engine work, free 'big head' and free new clutch cable.

i suppose free should be in quotes since she does let me touch her no no places lol.

You make money, you spend money.

You only live once, so spend your hard earned cash in a way that truly puts a smile on your face.

You cannot put a price on happiness.

With that said....

Polini = $200

Intake = $30

Carb = $60

Pipe = $120

All new seals and bearings = $60

Eh, I dont care. Mopeds is what I love and do not mind spending money on it....

Re: How much money is in your engine

Re: How much money is in your engine

just motor, right?

yeah, over $600.

hey, i'm obsessed. the bike was free! i'm still under the price of a new tomos, and the thing might kill me when it's done.. so yeah, totally worth.

Re: How much money is in your engine

i guess i dont feel so bad now, i didnt even think of the pipe though that puts me over 600. Im gonna try and buy parts one at a time though, to even it out some

Re: How much money is in your engine

I dont even want to think about this, but why not.

My magnum has had two different bottom ends in in, 2 new cranks, 4 different kits, 3 different carbs, and a couple new pistons before I finally got to the point i was happy with, but current set up.

80 metra - 220

Mikuni flatslide - 105

simonini - 130

Custom intake - 50 (thanks jeff)

DMP crank - 110

Pipe welding - 20 (thanks again jeff)

Bearing and seals -40?

Thats $625. Plus lots of timing porting the cylinder and matching the cases.

Now my Gila set-up that I am working on you can add atleast $300 to.

I'm dumb, and sad that I thought about this.

Re: How much money is in your engine

13.13 carb 55

redfilter 15

DR racing kit 110

Milled head Free

sloppy porting free :)

110 for exhuast not much at all

i need a frame brace

Re: How much money is in your engine

no money in upgrades yet, but I was really hoping to keep it under like 250-300 for exhaust, kit, and some other odds and ends... damn hope it doesn't end up costing $500.... especially since my parents still claim me as a dependent so no stimulus check for me... crap.

Full of agony and sorrow.

Re: How much money is in your engine

Man, you guys can't even compete with a Moby on dollars spent.

Moral of the story, Motobecane is a long and windy road into assured debt. And I can still only go 55-60mph (Maybe faster now that I have on a smaller back sprocket)

metrakit - $153

dmp crank (stuffed) - $110

Re: How much money is in your engine

my $600 was only the engine. that doesn't count the cdi, pipe, variator, intake or carb, or the transmission gears. yeesh.

Re: How much money is in your engine

damn what engine do you have

Re: How much money is in your engine

malossi crank case, malossi crank, pinasco top end and quality japanese bearings. doesn't sound like much, but that kit was pretty spendy, and i had to import it.
